Some random concepts that I have used that might help you allong, perhaps the big God is a 4d or even 5D being and the lesser gods are one step down, I used this on my Prime material god, actually the brain of the prime material plane

So this all seeing all knowing god functionally has multiple personalities that mortals mistake for deities, and border personality disorder, for not really caring what happens, so long as something interesting happens?
Sagely Advice / Mourngrymn's Crazy Idea to Change Religion.... Again!!!

So. I was laying in bed this morning and thinking about Hewdamia. Working on my game in my head so to speak. I've been thinking for a while now to change the Deity aspect of Hewdamia. I created another mock setting with my Untold War and I really liked some aspects of it and wanted to somehow combine the two together. Really liking how the original Gods walked the world long before they created mortals in their images. Now, jump to this morning.

I started thinking about altering my Deities even more. So here is my thought. Created a new religion based around a single God. This God is the typical all knowing, omnipotent, not wanting to get their hands dirty and get involved in the mortal realm and is just as happy and content watching them burn and destroy everything as they are watching it turn into a Utopian society. So, then add in the Deities I currently have and wish to add. They are no more than this single God's Avatars. Aspects of himself which he refuses to control solely himself so all of these aspects or avatars are in fact just different personalities of himself. (Or herself, or itself... random thought the singular God could be Cthulhuish  :cthulhu: in nature) Every aspect of his personality both the good and the bad and the indifferent are all formed aspects into avatars that are the hands on type. They are viewed as the Gods of the world by the morals that inhabit it. The mortals are mostly ignorant of the one singular God, or perhaps there is a group, small (cult like in nature) that has found the truth and worship this One Singular God as the True God but are seen as crazy lunatics for their beliefs.

Now these Avatars, what the world sees as the real Gods, have a physical hand in the nature of things. They fight with one another (Thinking of voices in the head of the true God fighting each other makes for interesting color to me.  :chain:) They work with each other at times, and even have the ability to come to the mortal realm at times. Which is where the Demi-Gods or half gods come into play. I have a few half gods I am working into the world and this would finally see a reason and an explainable way to put them in. Tamrep and Shivenhusk for example.

Right now it is just a rough idea and I was just throwing it out here for myself to keep up with it and someone to throw dirt or mud at it and tell me once again I have taken on a task far too large to accomplish.

I'll fade back into the shadows again while I ponder this some more.

And another entry! Excellent work!

Coming up is bishop. Ranking priests can be interesting people - their power may be very different from secular power, but there nonetheless. Or, perhaps in a fantasy or futuristic world, something different entirely. In the Middle Ages, some bishops were great warriors. How about mech pilots in the future or powerful sorcerers in other worlds?
I follow Johnn's gaming eZine and most of the time it's no big deal since I rarely if ever have time/group to game with anymore. There are quite a few things that have tickled my muse and made me want to write something for it, even if it never panned out.

Challenge 1: The Genial Monster

Write an NPC from a traditional monster race, and that NPC is a non-combatant. Johnn's example is a group of murder-hobos who befriended a gelatinous cube. The monster needs to be a monster, and not a friendly humanoid or demi-human, so orcs, ogres, trolls, etc, are right out. Crack open the Monstrous Manual and actually find something weird or ridiculous, like a grick, grell, mimic, cloaker, etc.

Challenge 2: Skill Items

The item adds to a specific skill, such as boots for stealth or tracking, a hat for spot checks, and a saddle for riding skill. The obvious stuff is too easy, and things that add to murder power or armor class should be avoided. For more interesting items, the item in question is known, so no one is surprised when the guy with the hat embroidered with the third eye finds things. Why you wearing a thief hat? I like it man, suits my face. Yeah, a thief face

Challenge 3: New Location template

A. Method of Defense
B. Style of Governance
C. Local Economy (what does the location do)
D. Local Legend/Interesting Hook
D2 - add name of nearby point of interest related to hook, rumor, or gossip
E. Resident (who lives there)
E2 - sample resident
